Today on Summit and Ninth

Burned last week at North Fifth and near 11th Avenue

Burned last month – North Fifth Street and Eighth Avenue

Arson, which used to be concentrated from North Fourth east is now popping up everywhere with the house today on Summit. Hardest hit is the area around the intersection of Eighth and Fifth which has lost four houses this year.

North Fifth Street and Eighth with three burned out houses in a row.

It seems that more vigorous securing of vacant buildings would be the answer but nothing is as easy as it seems. Sadly, it’s going to be difficult to match the architectural diversity of what has been lost.
